"Deep Tape Loops" is the first full length album by resident artist Telegraphy. A project put together that consists of modified cassette tape loops, laptop, vintage vacuum tube receiver, and various analog effects. "Deep Tape Loops" delves into basic minimal-techno dub using vintage techniques.

Trying to make new sounds in a analog way is mighty difficult. In the age of sophisticated audio manipulation software, where the novice can created wonderful sounds with ease, it is just no wounder why many artist have dropped their analog gear for virtual equipment. Telegraphy on the other hand, has taken minimal-techno back in time, where all that was available was analog.

Synth loops were provided by cassette tape loops along with various analog effects. By using these loops, a more rich sound, where as traditional software based methods can not obtain such quality. These tape loops consists of modified cassette tape cartridges. Only using a few inches of tape is enough to create a two or three seconds of sound. Ambient backdrop noise is provided by a vintage vacuum tube receiver. This old radio with it's etheric tonalities not found in modern solid-state electronics, can be heard off in the distance releaving the listener from the rhythmic pulsation of drums and loops.
